Y’all. This “Bandtober” businesses is serious. So serious. I could honestly sleep for a week. Let’s get into it.
- Cardio: 3.39 miles
Hooray for Sunday! We4a re having some really beautiful weather.
Then i met with my fellow St. A Moms to pack lunch bags for the shelter in St. Augustine after the storm. It was wonderful to do something for the community. We packed 55 lunches and sent them in with water and extras snacks and goodies.
- Cardio: 6.09 miles, running + walking
This was a great Monday. The run felt pretty fantastic and that was a win.
- Cardio: 3.05 miles
There was no time for slacking. I was up way before dawn to get my day started.
A had a dentist appointment, so that was a lot of rushing before school. But we got it done.
I was super happy to have a nail appointment. I love these.
Aside from the the nails, it was a long day of work, capped off by a meeting. I was very happy to turn in that night.
- Cardio: 5.67 miles, running + walking
Another good run. The humidity is pretty much gone these days, and I love it.
- Cardio: 3.12 miles, walking
I am struggling getting my walks any longer this week. Sleep is just more important, I guess.
After my shower, I went to my Poll Worker Training class for the General Election. With one election under my belt, this was just a refresher session. I am now signed up for two days of early election, and the general. I can’t wait.
I ended the day with another long meeting. Blah.
- Cardio: 5.66 miles, running + walking
I didn’t go quite as far as I would have liked, but I was busy, so that was ok.
I tried very hard to get everything done before mid afternoon. The weekend was going to be absolutely madness.
I volunteered to serve dinner to the band, and then Mr PugRunner and I went to the away game. It was a pink out and we did our best to represent.
Did we win the game? Sure did! But I was there for the post-game show. It was the first time our band was able to perform their whole show, in uniform, on the field. They were amazing.
- Cardio: 3.58 miles, walking
And here we go. I had an early morning, so I slept as long as I could, and then got in a nice walk.
My first order of business was to get to the school to serve brunch to the band. They had pancakes, bacon, and fruit before they loaded buses to their competition.
As soon as clean up was complete, Mr PugRunner and I picked up my parents and headed to the event. We were there in plenty of time to see the entire division compete. Our band was beyond amazing and did such a great job.
Prelims ended and the first round of awards took place. Our band won second in their division, as well as Superior awards for Drum Major, Percussion, Color Guard and Visual Effect. Incredible! I think it’s important to point out that this was school’s first competition EVER. There was a band last year for the inaugural year, but it didn’t compete.
The finals were incredible, with eight bands vying for number One. We took 6th overall (out of 21 bands) and I think that’s outstanding. Can’t wait for next week!
And why did no one tell me how intense and exhausting competitions are? I feel like I ran a marathon!
Goal-getting + Thoughts
I am dozing off as I write this. While we’ve always been busy, this season is taking things to the next level. I’m grateful for the work, and I love how much my kiddo loves his activities and that I can be a part, but I’m ready for a nap!
This will be another big week, with a little racecation, and some other fun things. Stay tuned!
How was your week in training?
